The Omaha Field Club area was developed by affluent families in the late 1800’s. It was Omaha’s first suburb and was bounded on the east by the city’s largest green space, Hanscom Park. The Omaha Field Club which was Omaha’s first country club and golf course roughly formed its west boundary and became the neighborhood’s namesake.
With these two amenities, plus a trolley system which connected it to the city’s center, the area was a convenient, highly desirable place to build a home for many of Omaha’s noteworthy citizens. At the turn of the century, many hired prominent architects to design beautiful homes which have been preserved over the past hundred years.
No longer a suburb, this area’s homes are listed in the mid $100,000 to the mid $200,000 range. The Field Club also remains a popular country club so the neighborhood is a viable option for those looking for a family friendly site with roomy homes.
